Git-Svn: Will it ever work again?
UPDATE: I have created a custom cygwin repository that you can run setup against to get the last working version (1.5.6-1). You can download it from the box.net widget to the right or by clicking here.
Well it seems that I’ve completed hosed myself good. At work I updated my cygwin install and it installed the latest git and subversion packages. Long story short, this completely broke git-svn to the point where I can’t use it. What sucks is that I use git-svn to contribute to CFWheels which I’m using right now to rewrite some websites. It’s nice to be able to find a bug and fix it then and there and not have to wait until I get home.
Luckily I raced home tonight and saw that my cygwin installation on my home computer wasn’t upgraded, so that means I’m still able to contribute.
What really pissed me off is that this has been broken since version 1.5.6-1 and for over 4 months and hasn’t been fixed yet. I tried to install msysgit at work to see if that would work for me, but it’s a no go since their subversion packages are at 1.4 and GoogleCode is on 1.5.
Even sadder is that msysgit doesn’t seem to want to upgrade their subversion packages anytime soon as the maintainer himself told me here.
With the on going cygwin and msysgit problems, will git-svn ever get fixed?
